had a beer, $1.75 draft specials, great! Ordered a large veggie pizza, was very ordinary. tasted like a home made kit you get at the supermarket. For $12, was expecting more. some cool sports memorabilia hanging around.

Food was very bland. Ribs seemed to be cooked without sauce and they just slapped some sauce over them before serving. Food left so much to be desired this was a one and done deal. Atmosphere was nice but who cares if the food isn't good. Lastly our waitress must have been playing cards in the back room when it... More

After a long grueling drive to State College it was very much appreciated to be able to simply go downstairs to have some drinks and appetizers. The food was decent, drinks were very good and the staff was very attentive.

PJ's has Happy Hour from 4 to 7 and during this time period all appetizers are $5. Recently my husband and I popped in for a light dinner and drinks. We must have been in an "Irish mood"... More

Brandon makes killer Long Island ice Teas and there's a ton of cool stuff to see (sports memorabilia). The food is mediocre and the cheesesteak is to be avoided. Wings looked good but i didn't have any

The food was good for the price they charged. They even packed the left over for me so I can eat it latter that night. Good service.

I do my best to avoid bars, period. But after a late arrival, and with a need for food, there was little desire to drive around an unfamiliar town. I was pleased to find PJH's open. The staff was welcoming and attentive. The plethora of TVs was an intrusion, not a diversion. Not traveling with my mom (for a host... More

Food was average but staff extremely friendly. We only ate the free meal. Meat was pork so we were not able to eat it.
